Book Review: Amish Christmas At North Star

With the Christmas rush now over, and winter’s official start, the time has come for us to cozy up with good reads and that’s what I wanted “Amish Christmas at North Star” to be — a good read.  I love all things winter, Christmas, snowy and Amish so I expected good things from this set of four novellas.   And truth be told, the cover had me at first glance.   Am I the only person who picks books based on covers?  I think not!  😛

Of the four novellas, I enjoyed two.  Not to say the others were bad but the stories did not hold my interest.  I read them for the sake of reading and being able to truthfully review this book.  The first (Guiding Star) and the last (Star of Grace) stories held my interest from beginning to end.  Without giving anything away, I really wanted to see how the protagonists connected to their pasts.  The descriptiveness of the Amish environment during winter and Christmas time evoked feelings of coziness that had me rooting for the protagonists to find happy endings.

The second (Morning Star) and the third (In The Stars) stories were hugely disappointing after the first.   Although there were high points in each , the plot lines were not as interesting as in the two stories I did like and I felt as if they dragged on a bit.

Overall, I’d give this book 3 out of 5 stars.  I wouldn’t re-read it in entirety but I certainly wouldn’t discourage anyone else from taking a crack at reading it.
